Looking 4 OEM Gas Filler Cap - Picture Inside

Looking for the grey OEM fuel cap used on our 3rd Gen's (not sure if the same during all years or not but I would guess they were).

Nice condition and in fully working order.

Picture of a friends cap ! Let me know if you can help, PM or email jlarsson@london.com

Modern Day Muscle sells NOS GM gas caps but they are black, not gray.

I beleive they all had gray ones from the factory but they might have swapped at some point as all the GM "spare parts" versions I've seen are all black.

Missing my original gray one hence me trying to find a nice one, anyone?

GM replacement parts usually differ in appearance from factory installed parts. Very common over the years.

Get you a good can of dove gray spray paint, some masking tape, and have a painting party. You won't have the lettering, but the appearance will be very similar.

Not my cup of tea to paint to match I'm afraid and I do want the lettering as well :-)
